About Me:

I run product for a Wi-Fi Startup called Aerohive, by day.


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

When I was in grad school and after I did a lot with autonomous systems, but career got in the way and I ended up in Marketing... Anyhow, I have never lost my love of building stuff, especially stuff that do things without human interaction.

"Hi iskess,

Just to first give some background... I have been using APM for about 2.5 years on copter but haven't used it on plane for about two years - so I have a decent sense about how to set up an autopilot... however, I am stumped on this one.  So I am set…

Adam Conway commented on bigkahuna's blog post I may have just witnessed the future of personal drones...not sure if I like it
"I think you just witnessed an old-school idiot, who happened to have a drone.  It could have been worse, he could have had a pellet gun or a baseball bat instead of a drone."

Adam Conway commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Time: "Here's why so many drone pilots are getting in trouble" (they're not RC folks)
"I think that there is a big issue with this characterization - these guys are flying multi-rotors not really autonomous drones per se...  I fly a lot in the bay area so I see quite a few drone pilots around - they tend to be extremely cautious and c…"

Adam Conway commented on Chris Anderson's blog post IDEO-designed quadcopter with 3G wireless on Kickstarter
"The folding design is nice, but I have to say 60 patents seems excessive and pretty scary especially given the overall solution appears to only have a couple of real innovations.  Most tech companies grow up and go public with 10 to 20 patents total…"

Adam Conway commented on Kevin Hester's blog post Introducing Droneshare, the 3DR cloud flight and fleet management service
"Kevin - Is there anything you do that isn't awesome?

I just crashed and somehow ditched my telemetry air module, but when I get my new module, I will get everything loaded up.  This is so exciting."

A buddy of mine was walking around in San Mateo, CA (a city just south of San Francisco) and found this great sign... I only wish it said "Lost Drone" but this is still pretty good.  May you never need to post one of these.  If you want to see his i…
